We were recommended by a Jeep safari drover who knew the owner (George Michael for anyone interested). First of all I would like to mention that the 2 of us had ordered steak (sirloin and ribeye) they were cooked perfectly. Easily the best steak we have had. Now to explain the poor rating. The service was utterly horrendous after the... More

Even though the food was mediocre+ / good, the service was terrible. The restaurant was not full and we waited to be seated (though other got seated). We never got seated, so we just sat ourselves down. The waitresses were grumpy, and stressed. As we sat waiting for our food (we waited a long time), we noticed one of the... More

Food was acceptable but I cannot comment about service because there wasn't any. They don't seem to care about their guests

After reading recent reviews we decided to try it out. It is a typically Greek Taverna and nice setting. We are a family of four, we tried to book by email but had no reply so phoned instead. We were placed by a tree covered in ants which made their way onto our table. We should've taken the hint when... More
